Three Graduate Teaching Assistantships in Sociology, University of Leicester

The Department of Sociology, University of Leicester has today announced three Graduate Teaching Assistantships in Sociology. The Assistantships cover full time home/EU fees, but it would be possible for international students to apply (and to pay the difference between home and international fees). The successful applicants will also receive an annual stipend and salary (worth £13,726 each year) as well as an annual Training Grant (worth £750 each year) to support appropriate research and development expenses.

The three new GTAs are the latest in a series of opportunities in the Department for funded postgraduate work. These form part of a broader initiative to grow our already substantial PhD community, and clearly mark the Department’s commitment to investing in the future of the discipline.

As subscribers to this blog will no doubt be aware, Leicester has a long-standing association with the work of Elias. An engagement with Elias’s work continues to this day, and the Department would particularly welcome applications from prospective candidates who have an interest in exploring, applying, and extending the principles of process sociology. Please direct any informal queries to me at

The deadline for applications is  31st March, 2014. The proposed start date is October 2014.

Further details and application forms are available on the University website, here:
